Nagpur: The Smart City special purpose vehicle (SPV) — Nagpur Smart and Sustainable City Development Corporation Limited (NSSCDCL) — has enforced a ban on sale deeds of unauthorized layouts and plots in the Smart City area based development (ABD) region, which covers Pardi, Bharatwada, Punapur and Bhandewadi in east Nagpur. This was decided at an NSSCDCL meeting on August 12. The meeting also discussed 12 other proposals.
The NSSCDCL meeting was headed by additional chief secretary to CM Praveen Pardeshi on August 12.
SPV Chief Executive Officer Ramnath Sonawane said that NSSCDCL has taken a decision to confine the sales of unauthorized layout and sub-division of land in ABD region. “Large chunk of land is falling in no development zone and agriculture zone in ABD region. The Ahmedabad-based HCP Design, Planning and Management Pvt Ltd, which is preparing draft of town planning scheme for the SPV, informed us about selling of plots in the ABD region by few owners.
We have no problem in selling of entire khasra as a whole but no sale deeds of sub division of land will be permitted. The SPV will send a letter to stamps and registration department asking it not to entertain sale deeds of unauthorized layouts and plots in ABD region,” he said.
Pardeshi has also directed municipal commissioner Ashwin Mudgal, the SPV Director, to ensure public notification and publicity of imposition of ban on sale deeds.
Out of the total 13 directors, 12 were present in the meeting, including Mayor Nanda Jichkar, commissioner of police K Venkatesh, NIT chairman Deepak Mhaisekar, municipal commissioner Ashwin Mudgal, collector Sachin Kurve, ruling party leader Sandip Joshi, leader of opposition Tanaji Wanve, standing committee chairman Sandip Jadhav and others.
Sonawane said the NSSCDCL, which has become the first SPV of the country to frame its own human resources policy, will have total staff of 54. “SPV’s HR policy is first of their kinds which is based on a slogan — performs or perish. Employees will be recruited on contractual basis for three years but will be chucked out in second year itself if not performed satisfactorily. Payment will be divided in two categories of which 50% will be based on performance. Also, the appraisal will be done in every six months,” he said.
The SPV has also taken a decision to hold its first annual general meeting in December. HCP gave presentation of process of preparing draft of town planning scheme in the meeting. L&T gave presentation of status of Rs520 crore and the Smart City solutions project.
